WordPress PHP issue with theme menus

Note: This is a very WordPress-specific question.

In the WordPress admin, in Appearance > Menus > Theme Locations, I'm selecting "which menu appears in each location" (I've got two menus running on TwentyTen) and everything seems to be running fine. However, every once in a while the setting will clear -- I'll check the Admin panel and my selections have disappeared. It's ruining my menu appearance, making each menu appear twice, stacked on top of each other.

Any idea on what causes this issue? Searches reveal that others are having this issue too but I haven't yet found any solutions.

For reference, my URL is http://www.cleverpapers.com -- you'll see "nav_secondary" at the top of the page and "nav_primary" just under the masthead image.

Are you using WP-Super Cache, or another cache plug-in?

@jeremyjared74: Thanks for your attention to this. To my knowledge I am not using any cache-centric plugins. These are the plugins I am using:
Embed Iframe
FaceBook Share (New)
Google Analytics for WordPress
Header Image Rotator Pro

I would start by re-installing Wordpress. Go to the Dashboard icon in the top left of the Admin sidebar. Click dashboard to expand to show update. It will tell you that you have the newest version, click install anyway. After you try this, let me know how it turns out.

@jeremyjared74: Unfortunately the issue is unpredictable: it's only happened once since I launched the site. That makes troubleshooting a bit difficult, eh? If it happens again I'll try re-installing WordPress. For now, I'm going to award the points to you and close the question. Thanks so much for your help.

You should try the Wordpress Re-Install, it won't change any of you theme files. You won't even notice a visual difference. I was nervous about this also, until I tried it. It only re-installs the default Wordpress files, not you image uploads, themes, or any personal files.
